IHOP, IHOb, IHOP changing IHOb, what is ihob,

We need answers.

Pancakes aren't enough anymore. 

The International House of Pancakes — lovingly known to most as IHOP — announced that it's changing its name to IHOb. And we have no idea why.

A place where I've spent many a morning curing a hangover with endless coffee and chocolate chip pancakes broke the internet on June 4 with this tweet: 

"For 60 pancakin’ years, we’ve been IHOP. Now, we’re flippin’ our name to IHOb. Find out what it could b on 6.11.18. #IHOb." 

That's right, IHOP(b) is making us wait an entire week before they announce the meaning of its new acronym. 

Founded as the International House of Pancakes in 1958, the restaurant I dined at after every homecoming shortened its name to IHOP in 1973. Only 45 years later, and they're ready for another rebrand. 

“We’re serious about the quality of food and our menu, and this name change really reflects that,” Stephanie Peterson, IHOP’s executive director of communications, said, alluding to a whole lot of nothing. 

We quickly learned how much a simple letter flip could cause so much distress, and rounded up the best memes, tweets, and reactions to IHOb and the mystery behind what it could be: 

1. Like, who do you think you are IHOP? 

2. Honestly. 

3. For everyone who thinks the "b" is gonna stand for breakfast: 

4. Slightly too relatable: 

5. As is this: 

6. I call BS. 

7. Emotionally shook. 

8. Okay but if you have an IHOP tattoo you really need to rethink some of your choices. 

9. I saw this, and now I can't unsee it. 

10. Really reminding me of my mortality here...
